Question USMLE World Third Time or Kaplan Qbank?

I am preparing for usmle step 2 ck.
I did uworld twice with 65% average the first time and 85% average the second time. Still I have one and half month remaining in my exam, so should I do uworld a third time or go for Kaplan CK Qbank?
Please reply, especially if you have experience.
Thanks

thing you need to know abt kaplan is that it is tougher than UWorld, will definitely broaden ur view of looking at a question and help increase your speed.

But it is smtimes from too low yield topics, ones u know will never be on exam.

What I think is it would still be better to do kaplan instead of uworld again, u already hav 85% on Uworld. because practising questions is very important for ck. You need not finish all of it, just do the IM part or any other thing which you think u aren't very good at. I did it for 20 days only, finished 70%.
It will give u lower scores than uworld, dont bother abt that.
Choice is yours.

make sure u are done with MTB and whatever other books u are studying, bcoz they are more important.

Now after taking the test and receiving my score report, I would say its better to do kaplan Q bank in random fashion after done with uworld twice, because it may not give you significant extra information but it does help you in managing time during usmle step 2 ck exam.
